Firepits with comfortable seating overlooking the ocean, close and easy access to the beach, friendly staff at check in, warm fireplace in room, tiled bathroom, nice towels, big TV. Downside was our room without an ocean view was dark, had street noise, and was a bit dated. Even ocean view rooms only had a window. This hotel was great for the price, but next time I'd pay a bit extra for one of the surrounding hotels with a balcony overlooking the ocean.
